There is now a new sgminer fork with MTP support being actively developed by djm34 (source) that looks promising, though it might need some more extra work for becoming more stable stable and reliable. Performance results on AMD RX 580 and AMD VEGA GPUs are quite good compared to what Nvidia MTP miners are currently offering and hashrate is much better than what the only available option with MTP support for ADM so far was delivering up until now – WildRig Multi. So if you are interested in mining ZCoin using the MTP algorithm on AMD you might want to give the new sgminer fork a try, there are two separate kernels available – mtp and mtp_vega and you might try both on your AMD GPUs to see what works better. Do note that the sgminer fork with MTP support is currently only available with a Windows binаry, though since it is open source you can try compiling it on Linux.

A recent small change in the Decred (DCR) protocol has apparently resulted in the old GPU miners not being able to mine anymore, so an update is required in order to continue mining DRC coins. There is already an updated version of ccMiner 2.0 RC3 from Tpruvot for Nvidia GPUs as well as the Nicehash fork of sgminer version 5.6.1 for AMD GPUs. So if you are mining Decred (DCR) and want to be able toc ontinue mining it make sure you update your mining software.

Today, Genesis Mining announced the release of sgminer-gm – an AMD GPU miner with support for the Ethereum network. Developed in cooperation with Wolf0, sgminer-gm incorporates the best of cgminer and sgminer in one easy-to-use package, and adds a long-awaited feature: stratum support for Ethereum (ETH), though you will be able to use the miner for other crypto currencies using the Ethash algorithm as well. All other Ethereum miners so far were custom and not based on the cgminer/sgminer functionality and now you will be able to work with the familiar feature set that sgminer comes with, including the API available for integrating support in other software for monitoring of your mining rigs for example.

Sgminer-gm can be compiled from the official Github repository (source); Windows executables are available for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems; and a compiled Ubuntu binary. A sample configuration is provided for users, just make sure you set the mining pool and wallet/worker address in the sgminer.conf file before running the miner! Feel free to give the miner a try and then also report if you are having any trouble running it or what hashrate are you getting mining Ethereum and on what AMD GPUs.

Founded in 2013, Hong-Kong based Genesis Mining has become a world leader in providing hosted hashpower for cryptocurrency. In November 2015, a nationwide awareness campaign was launched in San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and LA by Genesis Mining, which highlighted the benefits of using Bitcoin. In March 2016, the company launched the Logos Fund: a private fund dedicated to investing into a wide range of Bitcoin-related businesses.
